Meetings are held on the third Monday of each month, from 7 pm to 9 pm at City View United Church, 6 Epworth Ave. Nepean, ON.

Visitor admission is $5, except for special guest presentations, when it is $10.

We have a Members show and tell at every meeting.  'Show' means sharing of fibre related accomplishments. 'Tell' is the sharing of anything that may be of interest to members (shows, workshops, talks).
